Fiber optical flexplanes provide one of the highest density and versatile interconnect systems on the market today. For high fiber-count interconnects in backplanes and cross-connect systems, fiber optical flexplane provides a manageable means of fiber routing from card-to-card or shelf-to-shelf. Designed for versatility, flexplane provides high-density routing on a flexible, flame-resistant substrate. A variety of interconnects, including MTP, MT, MXC, LC, SC and the like can be terminated to connect the optical flex circuits to individual cards in a shelf. Available in any routing scheme, fiber can be routed point-to-point, in a shuffle, or in a logical pattern to meet specific requirements. Both direct and fusion-spliced terminations are available.
High Reliability. The product performance is stable, meeting the Generic Reliability Assurance Requirement for Passive Optical Components GR-1221-CORE.
Bendable. The fiber flexplane is flexible and bendable. The bending radius is up to 15 mm, and the bending has no impact on the optical performance and has no additional loss to optical link.
Customizable. Customized substrate size, shape and available in almost any routing scheme
Ultra-thin. The thickness of single-layer fiber flexplane reaches 1.0mm or less.
Flame Retardant. The flexplane conforms to UL 94V-0 standard.
Green. Conforms to RoHS2.0 standard.
Both direct and fusion splice terminations are available
Compatible with MT ferrules, MTP, MXC, LC, SC connectors etc.
Single-mode, multimode or hybrid versions are available
Insertion loss (IL) and continuity of entire circuit system is 100% tested
The fiber route designing software independently developed by T&S can automatically design and generate all fiber routes on the fiber flexplane according to the routing relationship and geometric size given by customers, which reduces the uncertainty of manual designation of fiber routes, greatly improve efficiency of route design and enhances fiber laying pass rate of automatic fiber laying machine as well. The software can also simulate the geometry and routing design of the flexplane to help customers optimize the design of the flexplane before the actual fiber laying.
Automatically design and generate all fiber routes on the fiber flexplane according to the routing relationship and geometric size given by customers.
Automatically check up conformity of routing relationship and fiber route against design rules.
It reduces uncertainty of manual route design. Under the condition of limited size of the fiber flexplane, it’s significantly competent for fiber route design with large fiber count and complex routing relations.
Compared with manual design, automatic design reduced process from days or weeks to minutes
Output optimal outcome of the lowest optical fiber consumption and the best optical performance automatically, greatly improving the laying pass rate of automatic laying machine.
It simulates the geometry size and routing relationship design of the flexplane for customers, and helps the customer optimize design of the flexplane before actual fiber laying.
